Brive is situated along the banks of the Correze River about 90 km south of Limoges. The city's full name is Brive-la-Gaillarde; la Gaillarde means bold and/or courageous. This addition to the city's title was earned in honour of the people who bravely stood strong against many sieges Brive encountered throughout time.
